CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: Mount Carmel English Baptist Church was formed in 1874, and was formally established at Tynyberllan (now demolished), in Castle Street, Caerphilly, Glamorgan. The church moved to a room at the old market place on the Twyn and built their iron church on the corner of Windsor Street in 1876. The first minister, the Rev. Thomas Thomas, of Ararat Baptist Church, Wauntreoda, Whitchurch, was appointed in 1875. The initial history of the church was dogged by internal disputes until the appointments of experienced and talented ministers Rev. William Morgan (1881-1890), J. G. Hopkins (1891-1895), and his brother, A. O. Hopkins (1897-1901). The new church in Pontygwindy Road was opened in 1892. Alterations and extensions to the church had to be made in 1905-1907 and 1913 to accommodate a growing congregation.
